connection settings, where to get the information

I am new to SAP, I do not work in a place that uses SAP, but I like to learn SAP so I can get a job in SAP.

I download the SAP Hana Express, and the NetWeaver ABAP 7.2 on Eclipse. I am following three different training videos on and YouTude and, which all three videos fail to explain how to connect or configure the GUI.

I get this error: C:\User\Admin\\AppData\Roaming\SAP\Common' does not point to a SAP GUI configuration file. Upon clicking OK I get a Connection Settings asking for the following... System ID, Application Server, Instance Number.

The system ID i believe is SYS which in the system ID for the HANA connection, thus the Instance would be the same, but what is the Application Server?

How do I configure ABAP in my HANA Express or rather in the SAP Studio within Eclipse?

Please Help?

    HANA Express by default uses system ID "HXE", Instance number 90.

      Can you access this link: In the VM environment, it explains the logon information as following:
    • Description : Local NetWeaver
    • Application Server:
    • Instance Number : 00
    • System ID: NPL

    • Can you try similar and see whether it will work? Sorry that I cannot help more as I mainly work on HXE part.

    This post is a primer on connecting a NW server to a HANA in an MDC config (default for HANA 2, and HANA express). It would be useful to review this, as well as the steps to create/enable a tenantDB.

    The HXE configuration has a disabled tenantDB called "HXE" which can just be enabled and used - it is disabled to ensure the most minimal footprint possible on first startup, and most of the tutorials available for HXE runs well with it disabled.

    I'd say that a tenantDB is required if you want to do any "real" work. Note that every tenantDB will listen on it's own port - don't assume it runs on 3XX15 (where xx is the instance number).
